A Quote by Walter Russell on civilization, life, society, and history

No civilization can exist part free and part slave.

..We have never had any other kind of civilization. It has always been that way. There has always been a division of man. There has always been the conqueror and conquered--the master and slave--the ruler and the ruled--the oppressor and the oppressed. There has never been content nor unity. There has been only discontent and disunity.

A Quote by Walter Russell on society, government, peace, and politics

War, and more wars, are helping Government to siphon the earnings of its people into its treasury for its own selfish purpose, which is to rule the people for the Government instead of for the purpose of serving the people. When will the people see that the very taxes they pay are building a power to be used against them?

A Quote by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr on life, freedom, liberty, business, politics, and society

Anything other than free enterprise always means a society of compulsion and lower living standards, and any form of socialism strictly enforced means dictatorship and the total state. That this statement is still widely disputed only illustrates the degree to which malignant fantasy can capture the imagination of intellectuals.

A Quote by Murray Rothbard on economics, society, opinion, and ignorance

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a 'dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance.

A Quote by Walter Russell on business, economy, balance, and society

Equal interchange of goods and service between buyer and seller is the keynote of tomorrow’s business world when the vision of the modern business man awakens him to the wisdom of writing that policy into his code of ethics.

A Quote by Thomas Malcolm Muggeridge on terrorism, spiritual, civilisation, and society

Whatever is fine and permanent in human achievement has been realised through individuals courageously facing the circumstances of their being; and a society is civilised to the extent to which it makes this possible.  Terrorism, which aims at putting out thespiritual light, is the antithesis of civilisation.

Malcolm Muggeridge (1903 - 1990)

A Quote by Don Edward Beck, Ph.D. on cultures countries, value systems, stages, intelligences, and society

Cultures, as well as countries, are formed by the emergence of value systems (social stages) in the response to life conditions. Such complex adaptive intelligences form the glue that bonds a group together, defines who they are as a people, and reflects the place on the planet they inhabit. These cultural waves, much like the Russian dolls (a doll embedded within a doll embedded within a doll) have formed, over time, into unique mixtures and blends of instructional and survival codes, myths of origin, artistic forms, life styles, and senses of community. While they are all legitimate expressions of the human experience, they are not "equal" in their capacities to deal with complex problems in society.

A Quote by Don Edward Beck, Ph.D. on society, quest, culture, codes, and memes

Once a new social stage appears in a culture, it will spread its instructional codes and life-priority messages throughout that culture's surface-level expressions: religion, economic and political arrangements, psychological and anthro-pological theories, and views of human nature, our future destiny, globalization, and even architectural patterns and sports preferences. We all live in flow states; there is always new wine, always old wineskins. We, indeed, find ourselves pursuing a neverending quest.
